Kipas Books is a new publishing venture, created primarily to celebrate the work of Kevin Burgemeestre.

Kipas, Indonesian word for fan, is a word Kevin used when cooking and fanning food to cool it. Now his granddaughter uses that word, and so Kipas represents the language link from Kevin's family heritage into the future. The logo represents a fan and a book which opens to celebrate his initials.
